I'm now officially 8 weeks pregnant! Only 7 more months to go!
The nice thing about doing fertility and then getting pregnant is that you get to have A LOT of ultrasounds right away. 1 every week for the next 4 weeks after you find out your pregnant and after 2 weeks of blood tests.
We just had our 3rd ultrasound. That second sac isn't developing...so no twins. BUT I do have a baby in there!!! It went from looking like a line last week, to looking like an actual PERSON this week! Its so incredible!!! You can see the arms and legs very clearly...and the umbilical cord attached to the placenta. Bodies are so amazing...
And boy. That heartbeat? Jace feels like it sounds like a hummingbird. Our hearts are definitely full.
Another plus of finding out that i'm pregnant when i did is that my little brother is leaving on his mission (for the Church-of-Jesus-Christ-of-Latter-Day-Saints) October 16th. So we had him come to a couple of the ultrasounds to see/hear the baby and get to be a part of it while hes gone. The baby will be almost 2 by the time he comes home.
(that happened to Jace...right after he left--December--his brother and his wife adopted a brand new baby (born in March) and his other brother and his wife HAD a baby a year after that. so he came home to a 2 year old niece and a 1 year old nephew!)
GUYS. still doesn't feel real...does it ever?
